He's a devout Mormon (supposedly) and voted on moral, ethical grounds.
I rather liked his speech and you could tell he meant it. He also noted that he basically knew Trump would be aquitted anyways. He's not going to be a
President or in an administration, I think he obviously knows this, especially after casting that vote. If he thinks he did the right thing on his
conscience, so be it.
He even said he knew he'd be roasted for it. What does he have to gain by this? Consider that question for a few minutes. Going against your own party
and even voters in your home state where I assume he wants to continue being a Senator in the future. He had nothing to gain by it, so why would he do
Sometimes, things are more important than politics to people. Being so honest and brave enough to pull such a move is bad for his profession. Tow the
party line at all costs. Apparently, he had "bigger" reasons to do so. It's fun to roast him because you don't like him already, and especially after
this, but was it not just a big green GO! sign to dump your feelings about him? He knew what would happen and didn't seem to mind. My point again is
that there was absolutely nothing for him to gain politically in this, yet he did it anyway.
